If you have ever been to Mexico you might understand why people come here illegally. For the most part it is a lack of education and there is no work in Mexico. I think the answer to our illegals' problem is to give Mexico an education on how they should run their country, starting with taxes..All the money we are spending on deportation and border control should be used for 'education'. Teaching Mexico a few things could really benefit us all....
Deportation of millions could accomplish the same thing. By now many of the millions of illegals have learned something about what a middle class society looks like, some have picked up a few skills they didn't have when they first arrived. For example some have learned how to drive tractors, use farm machinery. Their children have sat in our schools and maybe learned a little of our history and form of government (or maybe not).

If they return home in large enough numbers, they should be a strong force for change.

And to add to your thoughts: those folks here illegally tasted more 'respect' here in the USA vs. Mexico-------and, will demand more back home.

UPDATE: Here is where the illegals were from:

El Salvador, Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras

Charges filed in fatal rollover

The pro illegal group maintains that the illegals are only from Mexico
